The Remix: @UltaBeauty or @Sephora? #BuryMeMondays

I’ve asked this question before but there’s been a recent development so I wanted to ask it again. Which do you love more, Ulta or Sephora? Chicago Tribune reports that “a limited portfolio” of NARS Cosmetics is coming to Ulta. There’s no telling which products will be included but this could be a game changer […]

I Need It Now: @narsissist Velvet Lip Glide

I need you to understand that the sun kinda rises and falls with Francois Nars and Nars Cosmetics. Even if I don’t have it to spend I have to know what’s coming next. I haven’t had a chance try any yet but I am sweating the Nars Velvet Lip Glide.

Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita

A Fall Blush Option: @NARSissist Dolce Vita

NARS Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: Cruella and Train Bleu

I am an unabashed NARSissist. It is my holy grail brand. If I had the chance to meet François Nars I’d probably pass out. However, that opportunity probably won’t present itself anytime soon so I have to be satisfied with cool products. This is Cruella and Train Bleu Velvet Matte Lip Pencils.

5 Ways to Know It's Holy Grail

FOTD: A Bold Summer Look Re-creation

FULL DISCLOSURE: Nars 413 BLKR Illuminator and Lost Coast Eyeshadow Duo were gifted to me. I was hanging around on Youtube and decided search for some Nars videos and ran across this one: In this video head artist, Cindy Rodriguez, used some of the products from Nars Cosmetics’ Summer 2014 Adult Swim Collection to create a […]
